Featuring photographs by Michael Abramson and poems from 3-time National Poetry Slam champion Patrica Smith, these pieces serve as a love letter to the Black Nightlife of Chicago from 1974 to 1976.
Outside of the new Love in the Club exhibit, the Stax Museum boasts exhibits and pieces you can't see anywhere else.
I guess that’s just one of the perks of being the only museum dedicated to preserving and promoting the legacy of Stax Records and American soul music. Having recently been added to the U.S. Civil Rights Trail, people around the world know the impact that this Memphis gem has made on music history.
As you walk the Museum, you can marvel at memorabilia like Issac Hayes custom Cadillac Eldorado, or hit up the Hall of Records, a dedication to Stax artists and their collection of classics like Booker T. and the MGs “Green Onions.”
The Stax Museum also proudly hosts free programming for the Memphis community including:
- Movie nights
- Guest discussions
- Free family days
So, next time you have an off day or a free weekend, stop by Stax to take in some of Memphis’ musical memoirs, and score some groovy swag from their gift shop.
